Post Question about printers
What is it that makes a printer sometimes print out garbled letters that look alien? The borders will look fine. Even the main header name will come out fine but the rest of the words are a mixture of various symbols etc.
This is mainly on created MS Word documents.

Dunno...printers can be finicky. Sometines they wont even print until they get dam good and ready. Or they will keep on printing the same shit nonstop. Or they grab 3 or 4 sheets at the same time. Or......shall I go on?

I got one of those brother multi function printers that uses toner. Only issue I have is with others printing via the network.But I blame microsoft workgroup for that.

lots of things could cause that, fonts, driver (postscript or pcl), not enough memory on the printer to process the job right, etc. you'd be surprised.....
